Our little guy is here!!!

Yesterday at 10:25 PM our lil' guy arrived! It was the most amazing and emotional experience of my life. My wife woke me up at 6 AM yesterday because she thought her water broke, but she wasn't sure. Since she wasn't sure she decided to wait until she could talk to a nurse before we went in. She ended up falling back asleep and didn't wake up until 11:00 AM. She called the nurse and the nurse said we needed to get down to the hospital and see if her water broke. We arrived at the hospital at 1:30 PM and found out that her water did break and we would be having the baby that day! We were very excited, but very nervous too. They started my wife on a pitocin drop to induce the labor. For the first few hours she wasn't progressing much, but then she went from 3 cm to 8 cm in about 1 1/2 hours. Soon she was 10 cm and she pushed only for about fifteen minutes and our sweet baby boy was finally here. He weighed in at 7 lbs 1 oz. and was 18.5 inches long. We have only slept for about 1-2 hours in the past 24 hours...so needless to say we are both drained. We are still at the hospital until tomorrow and then we will get to bring the lil guy home. What a thrill ride this trying to conceive, pregnancy, and birth have been. I look forward to continuing to blog about the joys and trials of fatherhood!!!
